Operator: Bradford C.T. Fleet No: 634 Registration No: BAK 634 Chassis: AEC 661T Chassis No: 661T.187 Body: English Electric H32/26R On trial from: 22-Jan-1937 In service: 25-Nov-1937 Rebodied: East Lancs H35/28R 1956 Withdrawn: 30-Nov-1965 Disposal: 22-Jun-1968 Hardwick and Jones
Additional information: The upper saloon which, unlike later examples, had 32 seats. The rear seat on the nearside is much further back, later examples had one less seat on that side with a different seat pitch from the offside. I suspect the protruding destination displays may have been a way of creating the extra space required for this additional seat and it was decided that a more streamlined profile (which would also have been easier to maintain) justified the loss of two seats.
